Alan graduated in 1957 from the New York University School of Law. He was a brilliant lawyer, who loved his profession and practiced for more than 60 years. He excelled in his field and mentored many attorneys.

His love of language and oratory was his trademark. He represented and appeared before a multitude of municipal boards where he was in his element.

Uniformly accepted and respected, Alan was proud to be an attorney and a longstanding member of the Orange County Bar Association.

Alan loved helping people and his community. He was active in the Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center, a member of the board for eight years and received the 2014 Making a Difference Award in honor of the time and services he gave to the non-profit organization.

When he was not working, Alan enjoyed tinkering with computers and shopping with Bobi. He loved to sing and Frank Sinatra was one of his favorite artists.

Nothing made him happier than talking with friends and family, telling stories, and sharing a joke or two.
